Mălăiești Fortress

Are you curious to see one of the small medieval fortresses from Hateg Country, where the nobles used to keep their valuables and hide themselves in times of danger? You could visit the ruins from Mălăieşti.

This medieval fortress was developed just like the other fortifications in the area. At first, they built only one tower-dwelling. This tower was then enclosed by stone curtain walls. And later on, they also built four bastion towers.

The story goes that the fortress was much too small for being capable to handle a big attack; its role was rather of defence during conflicts between the local nobles. Even so, it appears that it wasn’t strong enough, thus being destroyed during a civil war.
